Journey Back Through Time

Written by Scott Sharp

Our Story

The story of begins back in September of 2010 with a comment made by a parent during a parent-teacher interview.

You should put this on the web!

I had been offering some ideas on what he could be doing at home to help support his daughter’s reading comprehension. He was excited that he now had some ideas to try. His offhand comment stuck with me over the following week, and the more I thought about it, the more I realised it made a lot of sense. Why not share this information so that all kids, not just those in my own class, could benefit?

Six months later, I launched It was a simple website that focused on helping parents support their children in the teaching of reading. I began adding my own teaching resources to the website. The popularity of the website continued to grow, and I found teachers were benefiting just as much from the resources as parents were from the advice it provided.

By 2015, the collection of resources had ballooned and now covered all aspects of literacy, mathematics, science, history and geography. I launched in 2016 as a way to share this wider focus.

We love that the time we spend crafting a poster or perfecting a worksheet
can help thousands of teachers and benefit countless students.

Over the following years, the team grew, and we continued adding resources. Before long it was clear our collection of resources had outgrown the design of the website. We needed to find a better way for teachers and parents to find what they needed. We completely redesigned the website, and the new went live in 2022.

We also launched our YouTube Channel with educational videos in another effort to support parents and teachers.
